33cl bottle at home from FirmaBier. Nose citric and roasty. Body is pitch black, head is small, off-white, mostly diminishing, good lacing. Aroma is citrus, milk chocolate, grapefruit, parfume. Medium sweet, medium to heavy bitter, light citric sour. Finish is medium lasting hoppy slightly roasty medium to heavy bitter. Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation. Quite easy, perfect balance, not a brutal BIPA, nice one.

metalspice (523) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2016
Svart hvor noe lys slipper gjennom i kantene. Frukt, Bær og lakris i duften. Søt lakris, grapefrukt og overmodne røde Bær i smaken. God bitterhet og tykk munnfølelse.

langeveld12 (396) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2016
Wow. First smell is lemon, apricot, peach and raspberry. The promise of hops comes back on the first sip. Hoppy fruits all over but then there's also light roasted malts and sweet fruits. Flavors shift from light acidic to light sweet with bitterness present all the time. None of the flavors is overpowering, balance is good. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy. I love it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rikstar (1932) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2016
UPDATED: APR 7, 2016 0,33l fles gedeeld met bryan, zwart met een crème kraag. Geur is mooie balans van de mouten, cacao chocolade en karamel. Hop blijft iets op de achtergrond. Smaak gaat verder in dezelfde lijn maar richting de afdronk komt er iets herbal hop bij. mooi romig mondgevoel met een volle droppige afdronk. Real nice
